Claudine showed interest in hair design at the early age of 11, and began doing hair for friends and relatives. Her inspiration for hair and makeup artistry at an early age can be attributed to both her parents who are professional hairdressers and shop owners in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Claudine has an artistic background including drawing, painting, sewing, and designing clothes.

Claudine graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising Management. She was awarded Senior Designer of the Year in 2004. Shortly after graduating from Virginia Tech, Claudine realized her passion for hair design needed to be taken to a higher level.

The combination of Claudine's talented artistic background, keen fashion sense, and immaculate styling abilities are qualities that make her different from other stylists, evident in her clientele's loyalty. Claudine has been a licensed cosmetologist for 5 years, however, has been doing hair and makeup for over 18 in the northern Virginia, DC Metropolitan Area. Bridal hair and makeup are her specialties; making people pretty is her passion.
